As the April 1 kicko of the 2020 U.S. Census nears, ocials are working toward one common goal: a complete, accurate count of the population.

The majority of the online sales tax revenue Lewisville stands to lose if the comptroller’s proposed rule is adopted is generated by a Bed Bath & Beyond distribution center, according to ocials. (Anna Herod/Community Impact Newspaper)

Lewisville could lose $1.3M in sales tax revenue under proposed rule

This would mean, for example, that if a Lewis- ville resident bought a Dell computer online, the city of Lewisville would receive the sales tax rev- enue from that purchase instead of Round Rock, where Dell Technologies is headquartered. Hegar said the proposed rule is meant to distrib- ute sales tax from online purchases more equitably across the state. However, many cities, including Lewisville, do not support the proposed change. “The cities that are concerned about the poten- tial impact of this rule, however, have pointed out CONTINUED ON 14

BY ANNA HEROD

Lewisville could lose as much as $1.3 million in annual sales tax revenue if a proposed rule change involving online purchases is adopted. Currently, if a Texas resident makes an online purchase, the sales tax dollars from that purchase do not necessarily go to the city that resident lives in. Instead, that revenue goes to the city where the business is located. However, if Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar adopts a rule he has proposed, sales tax revenue collected on internet purchases would be redi- rected to the city in which a customer buys an item.

FROMBRIAN: I remember sitting in my living room as a young lad in 1980 as my mom answered census questions. It was important then, as it is today. Our local governments depend on federal funds to help pay for all of the roads, schools and countless other public services that we use on a daily basis. Our team dives into the high stakes in our cover story (continued on Page 17). Another source of revenue for cities comes from sales tax. Most of us have moved a considerable amount of our purchasing online, which has had an impact on local businesses and even on city budgets. The Texas comptroller is looking at a proposed rule change that could impact how sales tax is directed (see Page 14). As you look to your family nances, we hope you take advantage of the many restaurants and other discounts available throughout the paper. We have consolidated many of them in our deals section (see Page 19). Brian Pardue, GENERALMANAGER

Highland Village streets project Highland Village voters approved a $7.15 million bond in November 2017 for street and parks improvements. After an evaluation of 126 streets, staff determined that 23 were failing, and more than 25 streets were rap- idly deteriorating. The first phase of the street improvements project is complete.

LEWISVILLE ISD The school dis- trict will apply for a three-year waiver to delay the implementation of full-day prekindergarten following a unanimous vote Feb. 10 by the board of trustees to approve the submission of an application to do so. In the most recent state legislative session, Texas lawmakers passed House Bill 3, which, among other things, includes a requirement that school districts offer full-day pre-K to eligible 4-year-old students. Students must meet certain requirements, such as not being fluent in English or qualifying for the free or reduced- price lunch program, to be eligible. If the Texas Education Agency approves Lewisville ISD’s waiver application, the district will not have to offer full-day pre-K to qualified stu- dents until the 2022-23 school year. School districts must meet certain requirements to be eligible for the

waiver, and according to Lewisville ISD officials, the district meets all of the criteria. The waiver is being requested because in order to implement the program in time, according to officials, the district would have to construct, repurpose or lease a classroom facility, or alternatively, would have to issue bonds. To fulfill the requirements to apply for the waiver, Lewisville ISD first solicited partnerships with public and private entities to enable the rollout of full-day pre-K classes. Three vendors came forward, but the district is not proposing to enter into a partnership with them at this time, according to district documents. The district estimates that imple- mentation of full-day pre-K would currently cost about $7 million, not including additional costs for special education staffing.

BUSINESS FEATURE StudioArt House Connecting through creativity S ince taking over Studio Art House in 2012, Anita and Marty Robbins have aimed to make it a place where people can connect through art. The business, which was rst established in 2000, oers art classes for beginners as well as for advanced artists looking to perfect their skills. Studio Art House also oers camps, parties and a variety of workshops. “We know that everybody has the creativity within them,” Marty said. “And if you just start by working at it consistently, then everything else—your whole life—is just enhanced.” Every instructor at Studio Art House is a degreed, professional artist, according to Anita and Marty. Anita, a professional artist who has sold her work across the world, often teaches classes herself. “The goal is to get you to a point where you can take whatever is in your mind and put it out there for people to see,” she said. “Art is not perfection; it’s perception. It’s helping people to see the world the way you see it. But you can’t always just do that. So we help students develop their skills to the point that they can do that.” In addition to classroom space, the studio also fea- tures a for-sale gallery of art by students and instruc- tors. Marty said it is important that Studio Art House not only teaches artists but supports them as well. The business brings people from all walks of life together over a shared interest in being creative, Anita said. Studio Art House hosts classes at senior living facilities and sometimes partners with psychologists to conduct art therapy. Additionally, high school students often come to Studio Art House to build up their portfolios. “A lot of people also come to us when they move here from somewhere else and they don’t speak English natively,” Anita said. As a result of this, Anita has taught students from Ecuador, Russia, Korea and beyond. “Our customers are of all dierent ages and back- grounds,” she said. “But when they’re doing their art, you know, it’s just one language.” BY ANNA HEROD

Verfurth said. “And at that same time in America, in the 1920s, people who wanted to live their own American dreams came to America. They were building things, like the Empire State Building, the Hoover Dam, the Golden Gate Bridge—amazing accomplishments. But they also brought their food with them from the countries they had emigrated from.” Verfurth said that when designing Lambeau’s America Kitchen and Taps, he wanted the restaurant to feel

Verfurth, who opened the Highland Village restaurant in summer 2019, said the concept for the restaurant was born out of inspiration he got from looking at the life of Earl Lewis Lambeau, the founder of the Green Bay Packers. Lambeau, who was working as a meat packer at the time, started the Green Bay Packers in 1919 with a $500 investment from his employer. Just two years later, Lambeau’s dream

As for the menu: Verfurth drew inspiration, yet again, from football. “We made the menu by creating a combination of dishes that are famous in every city that has an NFL team,” he said. “That was my inspi- ration for the menu—a celebration of America and the American dream.”

REVENUE REDISTRIBUTING DESIGNED BY CHELSEA PETERS | COMPILED BY ANNA HEROD

“We believe that the amendments will provide clarity to the businesses and the local jurisdictions and also will help to prevent any arbitrary shifting of local revenues from one jurisdiction to another,” Hegar said. Holli Davies is the vice president of advocacy for the North Texas Com- mission, a public-private group that works with 13 North Texas coun- ties on regional issues. She said that representatives of some cities in the region believe that the comptroller does not have the authority to imple- ment such a sweeping change. “If the comptroller moves forward with this rule change, it will affect cities all over North Texas, each in unique, nuanced ways,” Davies said. She added that the North Texas Commission has not yet taken a posi- tion on the proposed rule. “The other critique some cities have about this is that they believe the comptroller’s office is moving forward too fast because they have not completed an impact analysis,” Davies said. “So some cities feel they don’t have the data they need to fully understand how their budgets would be impacted. They only have rough estimates.” So far, Davies said, there has been a healthy discussion among stakehold- ers about the proposed rule.

that this would be a sweeping change coming from a state agency and not from the Texas Legislature,” said James Kunke, Lewisville community relations and tourism director. Kunke said the vast majority of the $1.3 million at stake for Lewisville is sales tax revenue from purchases at Bed Bath & Beyond, which has a distribution center on South Valley Parkway near TX-121. Some cities could lose millions more. According to Round Rock offi- cials, their city could potentially lose $20 million in annual sales tax reve- nue generated by the headquarters of Dell Technologies if the rule is adopted. However, not all municipalities would be negatively affected by the proposed change. In fact, Flower Mound and Highland Village officials said their communities could benefit financially. “Highland Village does not have any warehouses, so we would not see a loss of revenue,” Highland Village City Manager Michael Leavitt said. “Our community, like many around the country, does like to shop online, so the proposed change could benefit us.” Questions about where sales tax dollars should go have come up more and more as internet sales have rap- idly increased with the advancement of technology, Hegar said at a Feb. 6 hearing.

Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar has proposed a new rule that would change how sales tax revenue collected from online purchases is distributed.

When a customer orders something online, the sales tax collected is sent to the municipality in which the online seller is located. Businesses that have multiple locations can choose to direct online sales tax dollars to any municipality in which they have a physical presence. HOW IT WORKS NOW

Sales tax dollars generated from online purchases would be collected by the municipality where the customer making the purchase is located. HOW IT WOULD WORK UNDER THE NEW RULE

WHY THIS MATTERS

THIS RULE? The online sales tax rule has been proposed by Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar, who, as part of his role, serves as the chief tax collector, accountant, revenue estimator, treasurer and purchasing manager for the state. WHO IS PROPOSING

If the rule is adopted, cities such as Lewisville that have distribution centers generating online sales tax revenue could lose millions of dollars. However, other municipalities without such businesses, including Flower Mound and Highland Village, could benet because they would begin to receive sales tax from online purchases their residents make.

STEPS IN THE PROCESS Below is a timeline of the rule consideration so far, as well as what will happen if the rule is adopted.

development arena. As the system currently stands, Texas businesses are legally allowed to direct internet sales tax dollars to any city in which they have a phys- ical presence. This means that a corporation chases to a sin- gle city in which it has a facil- ity. Cities with w a r e h o u s e s or distribution centers are typi- cally the ones chosen. Businesses often choose cities because of the city’s efforts to reward businesses that locate within their borders. For example, in exchange for Bed Bath & Beyond choosing Lew- isville for its distribution center, the city agreed to give the business a par- tial refund in online sales tax dollars that would have otherwise gone to the city. “Sometimes, a business comes to town, and they don’t generate enough property tax investment to make a -HOLLI DAVIES, VICE PRESIDENT OF ADVOCACY FOR THE NORTH TEXAS COMMISSION. can choose to send all of its sales tax from internet pur-

and Arizona cities,” Kunke said. “This rule would take an economic devel- opment tool out of our toolbox that those other states will still have. We just think this rule would have so many potential negative impacts and potential unintended consequences.” What the future holds The comptroller’s office has extended the public input period on its proposed rule change through April 3. “There’s a lot of questions out there that cities are asking, and it sounds like the comptroller is want- ing to accommodate those questions,” Davies said. If the rule is implemented, busi- nesses and cities who have entered into economic incentive agreements before Sept. 1, 2019, that involve inter- net sales tax rebates would be exempt from the rule until Dec. 31, 2022. “We understand every city is dif- ferent, and while this proposal may be a positive for us, it could be a negative for our neighboring cities,” Leavitt said.

keeps a portion of the sales tax revenue, he said. “The money we rebate them is money we wouldn’t have anyway if they hadn’t moved here,” Kunke said.

Though losing $1.3 million in sales tax revenue would be unfortunate, Kunke said, the city’s main concern is what the rule could mean for eco- nomic development. If the rule is adopted, cities will no longer be able to offer internet sales tax rebates as economic incentives. “I’ll tell you right now. There’s a lot of competition for businesses between Texas cities and Tennessee cities, Georgia cities, Florida cities
